The Nissan GT-R SpecV is a special variant of the 2007 Nissan GT-R.

It is 60 kg lighter than the base GT-R and is equipped with a high gear boost controller, black rims, altered brakes and suspension. Nissan started production in 2009 and ended in 2011.

Games

Need for Speed: Shift

The GT-R SpecV appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 3 car with a price tag of $225,000 and 11.90 car rating. It is unlocked upon collecting 80 stars and is incapable of a Works conversion.

The SpecV benefits from an all-wheel drive configuration, which allows it to exit corners at high speeds without any difficulties. It is one of the most controllable cars in the game and is faster than a stock Nissan GT-R and other similarly ranging cars with a rear-wheel drivetrain in terms of acceleration.

Need for Speed: World

The GT-R SpecV was made available in Need for Speed: World on October 31, 2011 as a tier 3 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an A class car.

The handling of the SpecV is superior to the standard R35 GT-R. Its steering lacks the agility of higher rated A class cars such as the Porsche 911 Carrera S, as it is prone to understeer at high corner entry speeds, although this drawback can be avoided by appropriate braking. It has a moderately powerful nitrous boost.

Apart from that, its acceleration is typical for most high-performance A class cars. Standard top speed is 191 mph (307 km/h). The SpeedBoost variant is capable of reaching 203 mph (327 km/h).

The SpecV can keep up with more nimble A Class cars in non-difficult race tracks, that allow it to reach its top speed. Otherwise, it is useful in pursuit events like the standard GT-R because of its weight.

Stock: 645 (A class) Maximum: 721 (A class)
